    Congratulations.
    The aged, patina'd ones seem the most accurate. Nice catch.
    How do you compare the neck to that 63 you had?

    Take it from someone who has perused the collection, this man has some killer Clapton swag.

    Thanks for all the comments. Can't wait to dig into it more this weekend.

    Just got behind a desktop computer. My pictures really suck. Gotta try to get some more up today. Our weather has been crap here.

    You are definitely one of the friends I have made on this forum, and I think it's so cool when someone grabs an axe that is their "holy grail". Congratulations my friend. Well deserved, and hey, no need to explain the "idol" thing. We all have our inspirations, and Clapton is certainly a legit one. How many decades of hits? A very impressive body of work for sure.

    So to you....congratulations, and also....Shank you, in an indirect way! LOL

    Just a heads up for the most die hard Clapton fan. Music Zoo has 6 Beanos in stock currently.

    All are ex-Steve Miller guitars. Aged, Aged and Signed, and 1 in VOS.

    Never seen that many in one place at the same time! :cheers2:

    Al of those Guitars from the Steve Miller collection are grossly overpriced IMHO.

    At least they were when they hit the market originally.

    :cheers2:
